Did British infantry habitually wear bandoleers or was this exclusively the prerogative of the Camel Corps?

I specifically ask about the British figure in the Waterloo1815 set:


(second row, fourth figure)

Can it be used as a British infantry soldier?

Well, I guess it could be, but it would not be typical. That is really just a throw-away figure in an Egyptian infantry set.

These are 1/72nd scale figures -- yes, it can be used as a British infantry figure.

As the review suggests, he's probably better used as Camel Corps or dismounted cavalry rather than British regular infantry. I can't think of an infantry unit that wore bandoliers in the Sudan off-hand.

Thanks 79th & SJ. I was hoping, beyond, hope, to use it for something else but you're both right.
